Fantastic news for Rob Duggan to be in a factory supported team and going by his progression the last few years, he will be the one to watch in the JBRC

Any word if either of the two Spencer Sport Mitsubishi R5s will be out this year and also has Andy Fenwick sold any of the S2000s he imported??


Has Marty McCormack done any deals for either IRC or BRC, I know he was talking about using a Fabia in one or both championships if the funds were sourced

Some more good news about the BRC -highlights on Channel 4 and BT Sport Very Happy

The MSA British Rally Championship (BRC) will return to terrestrial TV screens this year after concluding a deal with Channel 4 to cover the seven-round series. The country’s premier rally championship, which begins in March, will also be shown on BT Sport as part of a new broadcast package that will ensure that the high octane action reaches as many fans as possible.

The BRC returns in 2016 with a new promoter, new classes, a new calendar and a new vision: to provide the ultimate test of the best drivers in the latest cars on some of the most iconic stages in UK rallying. As a result of its worldwide reputation as one of the most competitive championships in the world, drivers from Ireland, Australia, Finland, Norway, Sweden and Italy are expected to do battle with the UK’s best rally talent, including M-Sport’s WRC star Elfyn Evans. They will be hoping to add their name to a prestigious roll of honour that includes some legendary names of the sport, including Vatanen, Clark, Mikkola, McRae and Burns.

Produced by Worcestershire-based Hayfisher Productions, each BRC round will enjoy a half- hour slot on Channel 4 as part of the channel’s weekend morning sports programming, with a repeat of the action later in the week. BT Sport viewers will enjoy a longer 60-minute programme, providing an opportunity to expand on some of the great stories that will develop in the course of the season, including the battle for the DMACK Junior BRC title that will catapult one young driver into international competition in 2017.

“We are delighted to be involved with the relaunched BRC and to have Channel 4 and BT Sport onboard is a real coup,” explained Richard Hay, Director at Hayfisher Productions. “We have worked previously with British and World Championship rallying and it is great to be back involved with the sport once again. Rallying in Britain is on the up and it is fantastic to have the Championship on terrestrial television for the new-look 2016 season.”

“Achieving this fantastic broadcast package with Channel 4 and BT Sport is another important development for the championship,” said Ben Taylor, Managing Director of championship promoter, International Motor Sports. “The BRC is looking fantastic for the new season, with a great variety of cars, drivers and nationalities, and this TV deal underlines the strength of the series. The buzz is really back now and we can’t wait to get started in March!”

The revamped series will take in seven events across the British Isles as it tours England, Northern Ireland, Wales and Scotland before culminating on the iconic lanes of the Isle of Man.
